I ordered the truffle oil lobster roll - nice amount of meat, roll perfectly toasted - in all delicious. The chowder had a very thin broth although the flavor was good. The menu on their website shows fries & beer/wine - be forewarned, this location...More

Visiting Boston, we felt we had to try a lobster roll for the first time. Chose Luke’s and - although it’s pricey and you don’t get huge portions - the rolls taste amazing!

This might have been the best Lobster Roll I have ever had! I had the truffle oil drizzled on it and it was amazing. I also had the cabbage slaw, which was a perfect accompaniment for the meal. It is small, so it gets busy....More

Had the jumbo lobster roll and large chowder for $36. The large chowder was a small cup and the jumbo roll was certainly not jumbo. Good but definitely not great... no reason for me to return.

The best lobster rolls ever! Food is a bit pricey though. Every time we come to Boston we have to hit Luke’s! Especially if we stay at the Copley! Also the spices they put on top, the best!

The menu is pretty basic… I don't believe that there is a kids menu. They offer the basics lobster rolls, Chips and drinks. There are other restaurants close by if you're looking for something that might offer a kids menu.
